Thanks to scottfrie for the beer!
A - Thick and foamy shell-white head. Slightly hazy orange-brown (almost chicken broth-like) color.
S - Belgian yeast and grain aroma, not exceptionally strong but enjoyable smell.
T - Syrupy honey-like malt flavors with spices present. Some hops that add to the bitterness.
M - Moderate amount of carbonation and full bodied.
O - Great overall taste, aroma and appearance. The alcohol is hidden incredibly well.
Serving type: growler

Poured from 12 oz. can into a tulip glass
A - A hazy yellow body with a foamy white head.
S - Yeasty odors dominate the nose - I pick up coriander, clove, and lemongrass.
T - Fruity and spicy esters are the first things to hit the tastebuds. Pear, banana, allspice, and even a bit of bubblegum are in the mix. Then comes a Belgian sugar cookie sweetness. The finish is fairly dry with a touch of acrid lemongrass and clove.
M - A fairly glutinous mouthfeel accompanied by a foamy carbonation.
O - Worth picking up if you visit the Constitution State. Humerous artwork on the cans will entertain party guests, too.

Four-finger head that recedes in a lumpy fashion. It also leaves a decent dome. A bit cloudy with a dark, dirty gold color.
Grainy, raw barley smell. A bit of lemongrass. Some Belgian yeast nose as well.
Classic pale Belgian flavors: Some very pale malt, a good dollop of hop bitterness, the aforementioned yeast and a solid alcohol warmth, particularly in the swallow. Well-balanced. The body is as I would expect; the carbonation slightly above average.
